The healing waters of the Espiritu Santo Springs put Safety Harbor on the map a century ago, earning it the handle, "Health Giving City." That theme continues today with a host of local practitioners and retailers representing virtually every aspect of holistic medicine.
The area on the Sunrise Side of Tampa Bay had ample opportunity for residents to have access to Holistic Health Care. Holistic health encompasses not just the physical health of the body, but the emotional and spiritual aspects as well. The term is often used interchangeably with traditional medicine, natural medicine, or preventive medicine, which all describe methods of maintaining health, preventing disease, or improving physical or mental health without the use of pharmaceutical drugs or surgery.
This includes the use of organic and natural foods, herbs, dietary supplements, and modalities such as massage, chiropractic, homeopathy, acupuncture, meditation -- even prayer. According to the National Institutes of Health more than 80 percent of Americans have tried a holistic approach to healing, while more than 1/3 of us routinely use supplements and natural remedies.
Destination magazine also includes a regular section on Natural Wellness, and quality homeopathic care is available in all of the area we serve.
